youtube keyboard shortcutsWe all agree to the fact that keyboard shortcut makes life much easier. That is why we have previously covered shortcut keys for Chrome, GDocs and others. Shortcuts are a great way to speed up things and save time. Also, it makes the application very convenient to use. For example, you can skip videos by hitting 0-9 keys on top row of keyboard (numeric pad does not work). Press 1 to skip first 10% of the video and so on.

Here are the 5 keyboard shortcuts that you must know:

Left/Right arrowForwards or rewinds by 10 Second
Up/Down ArrowPlay or pause the video
Esc KeyExit full screen view
Numbers 1-9Jump to 10% to 90% of the video


These shortcuts will only work when the video player is in focus. To bring the focus try pausing and then resuming the video.
A single click will pause and another will resume the video. Double click makes video go full screen.
